ASBrS Opposes Cuts in Funding for the NIH
The American Society of Breast Surgeons opposes the $6 billion budget cut to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) proposed in the administration's recently released budget outline. Reducing the agency's funding by approximately 20% could have a significant impact on promising research that may lead to new advances in the treatment of cancer. Scaling down federal funding of critical biomedical research efforts in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer may delay or prevent future advances in patient care to millions of American patients. We urge Congress to continue its previous bipartisan commitment to preserve and increase funding to the NIH as passed by the Senate Appropriations Committee in June of 2016. We hope that Congress will see fit to continue this trajectory further into future years as well.
